Anaesthesia represents a set of techniques that allows a surgical or medical procedure to be carried out (endoscopy, radiology, etc.) by suppressing or easing the pain during and after the procedure in optimum conditions of safety. There are fundamentally two types of anaesthesia: general anaesthesia and locoregional anaesthesia.

If your treatment requires a surgical procedure, you will meet your anaesthetist the day before your operation. You will receive the details of your appointment from the Reservation/Admissions department at Hirslanden Clinique La Colline. During this visit, you can discuss methods of anaesthesia as well as the way in which the operation will be performed.
